Position Summary: Mission of Housing Connect

The mission of Housing Connect is to connect people and communities to quality affordable housing opportunities while promoting self-sufficiency and neighborhood revitalization.

Job Statement

Defined by the CDC, “Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health and quality of life risks and outcomes.”

Housing Connect has chosen to adopt this framework so that it can be a guiding force as we plan for the future. This framework provides a structure to focus current and future activities, initiatives, and housing development efforts. Housing Connect has chosen six priority areas under the SDoH framework; Financial Health, Food Quality & Stability, Housing Stability, Education Connection, Health Access, and Community Connection.

The Financial Wellness Case Manager supports the mission of Housing Connect by focusing on the financial health of those currently receiving assistance from Housing Connect as well as those on the Housing Connect waiting list. Income and economic stability are strong predictors of overall wellbeing. Housing Connect's goal in financial health is to connect residents with resources that will allow them to increase their income, whether it is earned or unearned, decrease debt, and increase savings.
